The annual pub crawl that is the North Atlantic Blues Festival in Rockland — Saturday and Sunday, July 11-12 — promises some of the most fun you can have in a Maine summer. It’s a great chance to see some of Maine’s finest homegrown blues artists in a number of downtown Rockland establishments. There are too many bands to list in one place — from Maine stalwarts the Blind Albert Blues Band, to the decadently funky Bangor-based powerhouse the Eric Green Party (pictured). Vocalist Pam Baker brings down the house, and so does longtime Maine guitarist Mark “Guitar” Miller. A complete schedule can be found by pointing your browser to Have fun.
